2015 European Adventure

Once again we are off together on a European journey. This time we start in Italy with a visit to the city of canals Venice followed by a 'Food Lovers Francigena Way'. We follow part of a pilgrim route linking Rome with Canterbury and sample some of the gastronomic delights of the regions we pass through. After a brief visit to the Eternal city, Rome, we head to Portugal to work off the excess kilograms by cycling through the 'Jewels of Portugal'. Starting in Evora we ride in a loop to Sintra while enjoying unusual accommodation and Portugese cuisine.
